since i've seen people interchange YJ and CJ bodies without too much trouble it would seem logical that the roll bar would also fit. only issue i could foresee would be the roll bar to windshield bar. you could either just leave the holes in the roll bar or drill your windshield frame to accept the YJ support bar.

yes the yj bar will fit. i have one in my 79 cj i'm building my cage off of. i needed the drop to the floor of the tub. i also have a yj windshield on my cj. but i wouldn't trust the spreader bars with my life.

STEP 1: BUILD IT!
STEP 2: BREAK IT!
STEP 3: REPEAT!!!!!

I will bolt up but there is a difference in the defrost ducts.
CJ ducts run through the windshield, I don't think YJ ones do

That is correct about the ducts. If you convert the YJ windshield to CJ type ducts, you will have to cover up two windshield wiper arm access holes in the YJ windshield.

the CJ plates for the dash dash knobs will not line on the YJ windshield. they bolt up the same but are space to far to the outside. i just cut new L shaped pieces out of steel i had laying around. its a simple fix.
